Jean Raspail died yesterday. He is best known the novel The Camp of the Saints in which he warned of consequences of the unchecked migration into Europe. Sadly his warning was not heeded, he was often mocked and derided in his lifetime.
I actually read that his novel was fairly received until it became popular among white nationalists, when it began to be criticized more by the mainstream.

This is sad. Losing Norm MacDonald and Gilbert Gottfried and even Bob Saget so soon one after the other. I will always remember Gilbert Gottfried for his nuanced takes on modern history.


I hope Gilbert Gottfried didn't pass away from Throat Cancer... that would've been a terrible way to go.


Actually now that I think of it, I think we have a suspect in the deaths of both Gilbert and Norm.

But to be serious... there was the time Gilbert Gottfried had to confront an actual Nazi.

Michigan's oldest living resident Irene Dunham has died at age 114:


She was the last survivor of this 1927 school bombing:


She didn't go to school on the day that it was bombed because she had a sore throat and thus decided to stay at home on that day. Lucky her!
